Wall lichens

Clean and light looking patches, which on close inspection are covered with tiny spheres (isidia?) like little snowballs, which give it it's clean and matte look.Seems to be in a war with neighbouring lichen, which itself is crusty and has black fruits (Lecanora sp.?)

This round lichen is crusty with a smooth surface, which may be same as #1 but without isidia?

Third is is a nice leafy one with jam tart fruits (apothecia) with an algal surround (lecanorine) and a marmalade-like orangey yellow interior
